BREAKING NEWS
 
THE CHIEF
DIDN'T KNOW!
 
Atlantic City Fire Chief,
JOHN BEREHEIKO
was not informed of the details regarding the Paris Hilton/Nicole Richie "The Simple Life"
 
Today, in a "Hurley in the Morning" exclusive ... we read the Chief Bereheiko, January 8, 2005 memo to Deputy Fire Chief's on-the-air ("Hurley in the Morning, Millennium Radio, WKXW AM 1450) ... The contents of the memo would leave the reader to believe that Chief Bereheiko knew all of the details surrounding "The Simple Life" coming to Atlantic City ... The truth is ... Chief Bereheiko did not know the details ... because the details were not provided to him ...
 
The Bereheiko memo clearly gives Fire Captain Michael Mooney complete authority to coordinate the effort ... even going as far as to make it compulsory (requiring) the Deputy Chiefs to provide their full cooperation to Mooney ... creating an air that the subordinate had more authority on this matter then his Superiors ...
 
The memo also discusses the final stages of a 6-week preproduction planning effort ...
 
Here's the kicker ...
 
We have learned and confirmed that Chief Bereheiko was not told by Mooney that the "film shoot" coming to the Atlantic City Fire Department was a Reality Television Show, with Hilton/Richie, etc.
 
Bereheiko was simply told that a "Documentary" was coming ...
 
Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson was told that it was an "Atlantic City Training Session" ... Mayor Lorenzo Langford was not given the full scope of the program ... And, now we have confirmed that even Chief Bereheiko only knew that it was a "Documentary."
 
This much we now know ... The problem is not with Levinson, Langford or Bereheiko ... It was the lack of specific information provided to them, which is at the root of this breakdown ... What remains to be determined beyond a shadow of a doubt ... Was it an act of omission ... or, was it a purposeful act of deception?
